Runoff for SC GOP gubernatorial race; Rep. Smith wins Dem primary

In the most recent count I've seen, Arrington is at 50.5 percent, only about 300 votes clear of a run-off (if my math is correct).

"And unlike you", he tweeted at Trump, "Mark has shown humility in his role and a desire to be a better man than he was the day before". Sanford, who was married, fell in love with an Argentinian woman, Maria Belen Chapur, and went to visit her after telling his staff that he would be "hiking the Appalachian trail".

The upset of Sanford, a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, was the latest sign of Trump's firm grip on the Republican Party. He is MIA and nothing but trouble. In Tuesday's primary, he lost to state Representative Katie Arrington, who had campaigned against Sanford by branding him a "Never Trumper".

'She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes.

Arrington also used the sex scandal in her campaign. On Tuesday, he noted that it's "fairly unusual" for a president to weigh in as Trump did and saying he's "neither for nor against Trump", but instead bases his decisions and comments on his political values.

'Bless his heart, but it's time for Mark Sanford to take a hike - for real this time, ' Arrington says in one TV ad.

Sanford endorsed Texas Sen. Joe then declared that Sanford's loss was because he "said a couple of bad things about Donald Trump" and this was proof that the Republican Party is now a "Trumpist cult".

Sanford is a second U.S. House member from the South attacked by a challenger for criticizing Trump.

"I am grateful for the President's support", Arrington said. But as Sanford spoke, the race was still too close to call.

South Carolina Congressman Mark Sanford (R) lost the GOP primary campaign on Tuesday. Rep. Robert Pittenger was ousted in North Carolina last month.

President Donald Trump has congratulated his loyalist Corey Stewart for winning Virginia's Republican Senate primary.

State and national Republicans admitted there's virtually no chance Stewart will defeat Democratic Sen.

He was the top aide to Trump's presidential campaign in Virginia in 2016, but was sacked for staging an unauthorized protest of the Republican National Committee. In Virginia, women won Democratic primaries in four out of four congressional districts that could be competitive this November. Trump won the district in 2016 by a margin of 53% to 40%.

Republican Rep. Barbara Comstock in northern Virginia's 10th District will face the victor of a six-way Democratic primary.

Comstock, a moderate Republican who easily beat back a challenge from conservative Shak Hill, is one of the Democrats' top targets in November.

Polls have closed in both states and well as Maine, North Dakota and Nevada. Local, state and national Democrats have called on him to drop out of the race in the deep-red district and said they wouldn't support him if he won. Another former congressman, Cresent Hardy, is the favorite to be the Republican in the race.

The district could go to a runoff thanks to ex-Democrat Dimitri Cherny, who has 3 percent of the vote.

The two primaries were sleepy Tuesday, but will be among the nation's most important battlegrounds in November. Heidi Heitkamp. And Nevada Democrats picked Rep. Jacky Rosen as their nominee against Republican Sen.

The most competitive choice for Democrats appears to be the battle between Clark County commissioners vying to be Nevada's first Democratic governor in two decades.

The president congratulated last week for the Republican Party's showing in Tuesday's California primaries.
